The Marsden B-100 Bench Scale has an IP68 rating, meaning it is fully waterproof and can withstand punishing environments. The stainless steel housing means it can be easily hosed down and kept hygienic. Now, following feedback from customers, the B-100 has been made to withstand capacities of up to 30kg, making it suitable for weighing heavier ingredients. It is accurate to 2g. It is expected that the B-100 will be used for weighing heavier sacks of ingredients. Previously, with the maximum capacity available being 15kg, users were limited by how much could be weighed on the scale, potentially slowing down weighing processes. Richard Black, Managing Director at Marsden Group, said: “After talking to customers we realised a bench scale with a greater capacity was required for harsh environments. The B-100 is great value for money and fully waterproof.” Marsden’s Operations Director Mark Coates added: “We made a video where the B-100 was dropped in a bucket of water and still worked afterwards. We wouldn’t recommend this is tried at home, but it shows quite how durable the scale is.” The Brew Shed, a Dunfermline-based brewery, uses the B-100 for ingredients weighing. Brewer Steve Hope said: “The B-100 is a sturdy, solid bit of kit designed for everyday use in a working environment. Waterproof scales are essential for any brewer.” The B-100 is currently on sale at a special price of £115+VAT. Bench scale with greater capacity Wort’s the worst that could happen? Moody Direct is a leading suppliers of process and packaging solutions with a large customer base in the UK, Ireland and around the world, ranging from small producers to blue chip multi-national companies. The company provides a tailored service to all customers with the purpose of reducing operating costs, increasing production and sustaining efficiency. Paul Hayward, Moody PHE, explains that the company’s plate heat exchanger refurbishment service can save energy. “Wort cooling = energy saving,” he says. “Plate fouling leads to poor heat recovery, which means you are spending more to heat your brewing liquor. Your plate heat exchanger (PHE) is an essential part of your brewing equipment, keeping your plant clean maximises efficiency. “Regular PHE refurbishment restores plate heat exchangers back to the new condition optimising heat recovery. Plate failure can lead to cross contamination between wort and brewing liquor leading to microbiological problems and wort dilution. Regular integrity tests can identify plate failure. “For a quick and accurate test, the PasTest2000 Integrity System is ideal. We’ve been running this test for 3 years now and our customers are always grateful for the early identification of issues.” Camden BRI, the UK’s leading independent food and drink research organisation, has stated that the PasTest2000 system was “very effective for systematic testing of plate heat exchangers.” For more information, get in touch with Moody PHE by calling their Customer Service Team free on 0800 666 397 Pictured is the PHE Refurb Centre For more information visit: For more information visit: 60_Layout 1 30/10/2016 16:49 Page 1
